ISE Pathways to Astronomy

ISE Pathways to Astronomy

Author: Steven Schneider Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/03/2020

Pathways to Astronomy breaks down introductory astronomy into its component parts. The huge and fascinating field of astronomy is divided into 86 units. These units are woven together to flow naturally for the person who wants to read the text like a book, but it is also possible to assign them in different orders, or skip certain units altogether. Professors can customize the units to fit their course needs. They can select individual units for exploration in lecture while assigning easier units for self-study, or they can cover all the units in full depth in a content-rich course. With the short length of units, students can easily digest the material covered in an individual unit before moving onto the next unit.

New Hollywood Violence

New Hollywood Violence

Author: Steven Schneider Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/10/2004

New Hollywood violence is a groundbreaking collection of essays devoted to an interrogation of various aspects, dimensions, and issues relating to the depiction of violence in New Hollywood filmmaking. 'New Hollywood' refers to the return to genre filmmaking following America's flirtation with European art cinema in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and is characterised by vast production budgets, and special effects. Focusing on the motivations, the formal and stylistic qualities and the cultural politics of violence as well as the effects on viewers, the collection is divided into four sections: 'Surveys and schemas'; 'Spectacle and style'; 'Race and gender' and 'Politics to ideology'. An Afterword by Stephen Prince reflects on the various essays and points the way towards areas of future exploration. -- .
